It was an afternoon of Christmas songs and music in Nakusp during the Arrow Lakes Art Council’s by-donation Community Concert. The Bonnington was filled with audience and performers in the midafternoon.

Sickness caused the cancellation of the Savage School of Music’s youth contribution, but the show went on, continuing with a series of string pieces. The violin, viola and piano  came together with a range of experience. The youngest member of the group, Holly Hughes, played a 1/16 violon.

Sabine Mocikat and Sheila McGinnis played three pieces, including Schumann’s Soldier’s March.

The Fauquier singers dressed in red and black were up next, and regaled the audience with an assortment of seasonal medleys as well as the less traditional River Sing Your Song, a lovely meandering piece.

Music filled the second half too.
